Appropriate steps have been taken to raise a healthy puppy and in the future a healthy dog. Clearances on the parent(s) for patellar luxation, cardiac soundness, and/or eyes does not guarantee that the puppy will not have patellar, elbow, & or eye related problems in the future or will pass health clearances for these issues. However, it has been shown that healthy parents are significantly more likely to produce healthy offspring with a reduced risk of serious health problems. It is important to note however that all living creatures are subject to health problems including those that are life threatening even when there is no
history of this problem in the animal’s background.
Charmin Lapwarmers (hereafter referred to as “The Breeder”) hopes that you will enjoy your new puppy for many years to come! We have taken the necessary steps to ensure that your new puppy arrives healthy, including having your puppy seen by a licensed veterinarian prior to leaving our home. Please read the guarantee thoroughly so you understand exactly the procedure that needs to be followed from the regular arrival-checkup to ensure the puppy’s well being and validation of the guarantee to any claim that has to be made.
